A couple of months ago in the internet it was sought look a like-actors to play king Carl Gustaf, queen Silvia, prince Daniel and crown princess Victoria at a finnish commercial, it would take two days to make the commercial.
The actors have been found - they were sought to a commercial of Prisma. Prisma is a family-friendly hypermarket of the cooperative S Group.

Here is the commercial. Victoria, Daniel and Estelle have moved to Finland and the king and queen come to visit.
"We can cope with them", says Daniel to Victoria when the doorbell rings.
"Daddy, nice to see you", says Victoria. "Oh, your belly is growing so", says the king.
They sit to the table and the king says: "Wasn't this move to Finland a little hasty? There isn't anything...".
Victoria: "Dad, we have already talked about this. We like it here very much and we can live a pretty ordinary life".
Queen Silvia says: "These plates you haven't got from us?"
Daniel: "No, they come from...".
The king: "It is so costly here also"
Victoria: "Costly?"
Queen Silvia takes a plate to look at it and Estelle comes: "No! Grandma, it is mine!"
Daniel: "Let grandma look at the plate. Sorry."
Queen Silvia: "This could suit us at home"
The king: "Yes, maybe"
Queen Silvia: "Where can one get these?"
Victoria: "From Prisma"
The king: "What was it called?"
Victoria: "It is called Prisma".¨
The king: "I want to go to Pr... Okay."

The Solliden Palace is preparing already for the summer, new postcards of the royal family will be on sale there (and certainly also at the royal gift shops at other palaces).

New stamps at the Royal Jubilee Year will be published on 17th March. The stamps were designed by Daniel Bjugård from the photographs by Anna-Lena Ahlström.

The king's photo is fine, but once again this Anna-Lena Ahlström has managed to make Estelle look totally weird. She doesn't look like herself at all. The photo with the king, Victoria and Estelle isn't natural at all.

I lke how the stamps look. The only complaint that I have is that it looks like the three of them were photoshopped together after single pictures of them had been taken. I also like Estelle and Victoria's hairstyle, especially that of Estelle as it seems to channel the hairstyle of Leonor and Sofia of Spain

Still,in her solitude, she is the Queen".

Very nice photos. So pleased to see that both Victoria and Estelle are wearing softer hair styles rather than the stiff "helmet" look. JMHO!

Love the stamps. The picture of the three reminds me of Norway. Though it would be nice if they did what the Norweigans do, and actually take a photo together (Haakon, Harald and IA are often shot together). Instead of photo shopping pictures together. It shouldn't have been too hard.

Love Vic's outfit and hairstyle, so soft, would love if she wore her hair like that at an event. Estelle is as cute as ever. Her hair does remind me of one of the Spanish princesses.

I love the stamps! Obviously, it would have been better if they didn't photoshop everyone together, but it's a pretty great job. And Victoria looks like a knockout!

King Carl Gustaf and queen Silvia attended a couple of weeks ago at the 75th birthday anniversary party of businessman Claes Dinkelspiel. He celebrated his birthday with 320 guests at Wallmans Salonger in Stockholm. Mark Levengood hosted the evening and among the performers were Peter Jöback and The Fantastic Four.

A survey Novus has done on behalf of the Association of The Swedish Advertisers, shows that one in five Swedes think that Crown Princess Victoria is the biggest role model within the Swedish media.
Swedish Advertisers does with market research company Novus ongoing studies of the Swedish people's attitudes to various brands. In the latest online survey about 1,000 people were questioned on 4th-10th February, on the occasion of the International Women's Day March 8: "Who, of the following Swedish female media profiles do you think is the biggest role model for you personally?"
At the top of the list is Crown Princess Victoria. Total 20 percent of Swedes think that she is the biggest female role model in the Swedish media. Among women, the figure rises to 24 percent. TV4 and TV host profile Tilde de Paula gets 10 percent of the votes. Tied for third place on the list are Anja Pärson, Babben Larsson and Robyn, each receive 7 percent of the votes.
Princess Madeleine and princess Sofia received both 2 percent of the votes.

@Lady Finn - I looked over that list. Good for Victoria, bad for Madeleine and Sofia. (Where they throwing shade when they listed Sofia as "Sofia Hellqvist"? ) I'm surprised the queen didn't make the cut. Of of 1000 people polled, only 20 (2%) each saw Madeleine and Sofia good role models. This is not good when you represent the brand that is called the Swedish Royal Family. Hazarding a guess, Madeleine's and Sofia's past reputations may have been a factor in the polling. Throw in the Madeleine vs. Sofia feud that has played out in the tabloids and their individual negative stories in the press may have been that "I-just-can't" moment for these royals when time came to voting. I wish there were a follow up question as to why just to get insight.
